Stand-up Paddle Boarding on the Thames

Waves for Change invites you to join us for their annual Thames Stand-Up Paddle Board Challenge. This year they are paddling to break down gender barriers and raise funds to provide more girls safe access to surf therapy.

Taking place on Saturday 23rd June, this will be London’s biggest charity watersport event!

SUPer’s will have the choice of two distances – a 5km paddle adventure open to all (first timers too), or a 35km paddle challenge for those who need testing! Both distances will take in the iconic views of London, both guaranteed to be a lot of fun, and both will go a long way in helping them achieve 50-50 gender representation at W4C.

SUPer’s are strongly encouraged to don superhero fancy dress but not essential. There will be a host of awesome prizes kindly donated by Finisterre and Ticket to Ride, plus the opportunity to win a top of the range SUP board!

If that wasn’t enough, they will also be hosting a post paddle party where friends and family can join you to celebrate.

By being part of this event you will help in power girls across Africa, improving their confidence and self-worth, and instilling the believe they are equal to boys. All they ask is for a donation relevant to the distance you choose and as much fundraising as you can to support your journey.

So Sign-up and join them as they Stand Up for Equality this summer.

They look forward to having you  ‘on-board’!

I will be organising a couple of hours of paddle boarding on the Cherwell before the event. This will be a good practise run! If you are interested email me
